Sour Old Fox

Long term followers of The Vulpine Portfolio will have noticed the lengthening shadows weaving their way through my output since reinstating the Vulpine Voice section late last year. Honestly, as I grow older I find myself tired and disillusioned with both the wider occult community and magick in general. I say this not to seek … Continue reading Sour Old Fox

Accelerated Evolution

That means that I can post updates far more … Continue reading My Vulpine Voice

The Subtle Sigil

My second article to feature in Five of Swords Esoteric Magazine is an exploration of the procedural dogma that plagues sigil creation in the post chaos era. Offered alongside the work of a number of other bleeding edge occult authors for free in PDF format via social media platforms around the start of October 2019, … Continue reading The Subtle Sigil
